  • New team aims to grow Autofind used car volumes
  • Hyundai Autofind service making good headway with network activity
  • Autorola set for a record year in 2012

Autorola, Europe’s largest online remarketing company is gearing up for a further year of growth in the UK with the appointment of six new team members.

Simon Whittaker, James Mills and Thomas Morton-Collings have all joined from dealer group backgrounds as sales executives to help further grow Autorola’s Autofind Stock Locator system, which already offers nearly 6,000 used cars for sale daily to its network of buyers.

Martin Blunt has taken on the role of running the three weekly auctions for dealers focussing on the best value stock listed on Autofind. Aimed at helping dealers access good value vehicles in these tough economic conditions, 75 cars and light vans are auctioned online on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday for just a 48 hour period.

Assisting both areas will be sales support executives Amy Harrison-Carstairs and Adam Fone who will manage all the administration around the growing number of used cars for sale and registered numbers of buyers using the Autorola platform.

Neil Frost, Autorola UK’s general manager said: “The six new appointments will help us cater for the weekly growth in buyers and sellers using our systems.

“Our Hyundai Autofind service is also growing with more than half the network now using the service to buy and sell cars,” he added.

Autorola is set to offer more than 250,000 vehicles for sale online during 2012 through its 17 subsidiary countries, its best ever performance.
